(Boise, ID) ? If it is any indication of things to come, Idaho Steelheads fans should get ready for a big season. ?Hopefully it?s a sign of good things on the way,? head coach Hardy Sauter said. The ?it? that Sauter spoke of was his hole-in-one Sunday morning at Eagle Hills Golf Course at the annual Ada County Sheriff Association?s Celebrity Golf Scramble. ?First one.? Sauter said of his ace on the par-3, 14th hole. He covered the 125 yards with his nine iron in front of Steelheads team president Eric Trapp along with Detective William Smith of the Boise Police Department and Mark Otter of the Garden City Police. Matt Hodges, the general manager of Jimmy John?s Gourmet Sandwiches, also saw the rare feat. ?One hop and right in the hole,? he remembered with smile. ?Next thing I did was spin around to see what the prize was.? There were all kinds of prizes available at the tournament for closest to the pin, hole-in-one, and longest drive, among others. Sauter lamented with a laugh that he didn?t win a new car, just $500. The tournament had all kinds of celebrities participating, including Steelhead legends Marty Flichel and Cal Ingraham. Also on the course were NFL players Ryan Clady, Daryn Colledge, and Korey Hall. A lot of them were looking for Sauter when the golf was done. ?I had to leave before I could buy a round of drinks for everyone,? Sauter admitted. ?Maybe that?s a good thing. My winnings would have been gone.?
